Storm Dylan: Met Office Forecasts A Wet And Windy New Year

After issuing a status yellow wind warning for ten counties at midnight last night, Met Éireann have now issued a status orange weather warning that will affect the entire province of Connacht, as well as Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Longford, Louth, Westmeath and Meath.

The biggest impact from the storm will be across Connacht and Ulster.

The weather warning, which is in effect from 9pm Saturday night to 6am Sunday morning, is as a result of Storm Dylan arriving in Ireland.

Meanwhile, a Status Yellow wind warning has also been issued for Munster and the rest of Leinster ahead of the arrival of the storm tomorrow evening.

Two children were among the dead and 84 people were injured in the blast, according to a Health Ministry spokesman. Rahimi said the main blast was followed by two smaller bomb explosions that did not cause casualties.

Its expected track is north-eastwards through Donegal Bay and up along the north-Ulster coast.

Met Eireann expects that south-west winds from storm Dylan will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65kph, with gusts up to 100kph, from late Saturday night until the early hours of Sunday morning. Highest temperatures will range from between 5 to 8 degrees across the country.

Some areas will experience heavy showers with the best of the clear spells and sunshine likely on New Year's Eve though ground frost will develop in places as we approach the switch to 2018. Connacht, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Longford, Louth, Westmeath, and Meath will be the worst impacted.
